"For years I have used Operation World to pray for people in every tongue, tribe and nation. Operation World is a time-honored and well-tested global manual of prayer that will provide you with everything you need to bring the nations of the world before the throne of God. It will expand your heart, vision and passion for the peoples of the world and God's deep desire to reach those in the darkest corners with his help and hope."

Operation World is designed to be used as a prayer guide with a date listed at the bottom of each page so you can work your way through it in a year. Christians around the world can and will be informed, guided and inspired by this book. When we hear about a country in the news or when there is conflict in a region Operation World is a quick resource to learning about the country, understanding the issues and knowing how to pray. My church is using Operation World in weekly prayer meetings, focusing on one country each week. It can also be used by families during family meetings or prayer times, to teach children about our vast world and to educate them about world geography, the diversity of peoples and the vast need to spread the Gospel. Parents who are home schooling will also find this to be a valuable resource.
The Completely Revised -7th edition of Operation World was published in 2010 by Jason Mandryk so the information is as up to date as it possibly could be. Reading and studying Operation World is a great way to increase our knowledge of other countries and cultures and great way give us a heart for missions and to focus our prayers. And it is guaranteed to lessen our provincialism.
This book is encyclopedic in its scope and is a great source for data in order to be both informed and encouraged to pray for the world.
After the first section which deals with the why and wherefore, the book's first section gives an overview of what is happening in the world and various regions of the world.
The large section from pages 89 to 900 deals with the countries of the world in alphabetical order for information and prayer. The book closes with nine appendices going from "Global Facts and Figures" to "Frequently Asked Questions."
Mission leaders and missionaries need to have a copy of this book to keep themselves informed about the various countries of the world and to keep a global perspective. This book helps my wife and me to pray for the world in an orderly way.
I used this book to teach a class on ministry in European contexts at Dallas Theological Seminary. I cannot recommend it more highly. The DVD which of this book enables one to have PowerPoint presentations for missions programs in churches and teaching in theological schools.
For the geography enthusiast, the book individually covers each country in the world with statistics and description. This book is a global geography reference by itself.
For the statistics enthusiast, each country is enumerated with a breakdown of population demographics, ethnicity, religion, and more.
For the religious reader, each country is addressed from the Christian perspective, considering the oppression, persecution, violence, human trafficking, corruption, enslavement, discrimination, and moral decay of that country.
Overall, an invaluable textbook and reference guide to our world.
